Explore the fascinating past, present, and possible future of Elon Musk's SpaceX in the first comprehensive photographic history of the company. The private space industry's consensus leader, SpaceX, headed by controversial billionaire Elon Musk, is worth an estimated $187 billion today in 2023. And SpaceX is taking on more roles--flying cargo, supplies, and astronauts to outer space, and even playing a central role as rocket supplier to NASA's Artemis moon mission. SpaceX: Elon Musk and the Final Frontier tells the story with the modern prose of science journalist and editor Brad Bergan and 200+ stunning photographs of the spacecraft, key players, and facilities in California, Texas, and Florida. In this illustrated history, Discover- and Bloomberg-cited author Brad Bergan examines every detail surrounding SpaceX's efforts to accelerate humankind's exploration and understanding of outer space, including:

  • The personal and private forces that led Musk to form the company
  • The business of private space exploration, including contracts with other private firms and NASA
  • Chief rivals, including Blue Origin, founded by Amazon's Jeff Bezos


Bergan also covers SpaceX in the headlines, from space junk and test launches to SpaceX's part in the collaborative effort to reinforce Ukraine's digital infrastructure against Russia's military onslaught. While examining the business, the missions, and the hardware, Bergan looks at the importance of design-forward equipment from marketing perspectives and, finally, the endgame: what ultimately is "in it" for SpaceX?

SpaceX: Elon Musk and the Final Frontier is the ultimate visual look at a groundbreaking company, with an eye toward its relatively short past--and a critical eye toward its future dominion in deep space.
